After Brief Delays
Due to the NAIA tournament and some
unsportsmanlike conduct among the in
tramural teams, the Intramural Basket
ball Program came to an abrupt end
until after the spring break. This was
done in an effort to give the Ram basket
ball team ample access to the gym
nasium and to give the intramural teams
time enough to reassess their values.
At the end of what is now called part I
of the IBA, the White League has two
teams tied for first place. They are the
“Niggers”, coached by player-coach,
Kenneth Hicks and the “Slayers”, who
have no active coach. Both of these
teams have a 4-1 record. The “Flying
Dutchman”, another outstanding team
in the White League, follows with a 4-2
record. Their defeat by the “Slayers”,
44-42, in the closing seconds of the game,
pushed them out of first place.
The Red League has a three way tie
for first place among the “Nitty Lions”,
coached by player-coach, Alfred Harvey,
the “Vikings”, coached by Ernest Rich
mond, and the “Unknowns”, coached by
Gilbert Huff and Reginald Gomillion.
These three teams have a record of 5-1.
The “Nitty Lions” caused this three-way
tie by defeating the number one “Vik
ings” in triple overtime, 50-49. TNT, with
a record of 4-1, hopes to be up there in
the ranks of first place after their bouts
with “Brown Hall 5th Floor” and the
Only the first four teams in each league
can participate in the IBA tournament.
As it stands now, it’s a close race for
all four positions in both leagues.
The team which has scored the most
points thus far in a single game has
been the “Fighting Green-Waves”, a five
man squad. They have scored 79 points.
The “Fighting Green-Waves” have also
had the largest victory margin of 42
points. Ronnie Spears of that team
scored the most points in a single game,
36. Spears also leads the IBA in scoring
with 19.8 points per game.
Following the championship game, the
All-Star team will be announced. The
All-Star game (All-Stars vs. champions)
will conclude the basketball intramurals
for this season.

experience was quite rewarding. Two
freshmen made it to the finals.
